    Not so sure about the beans on offer with the proper and vegetarian breakfasts are the right choice. Too spicy for a breakfast offering. Everything else spot on. We’ll be back

    Have been recently for breakfast in private dining room & was great. Unfortunately they had a private dining room booking when we dined yesterday which meant that our food was rushed out, the eggs were all overcooked so we had to send them back and food wasn’t very hot. We then had a disjointed brunch where we were eating at different times.

    Ordered late which was barely warm. Asked the barista if he could change it which he kindly did & brought it over himself. Had breakfast, great food as always, then ordered 2 more coffee. After 15 mins asked the waiter where it is & he said there was a back log. The place was not even busy I have seen it packed & queues outside & still had great service. 5 mins later our coffees arrived, both just warm and again asked for replacement hot coffees. Complained to waiter & spoke to manager who kindly took the price of the coffees off our bill. What a shame the waiters were not doing there job properly & also would not even look at us when we paid or say thank you or goodbye.

    HI Sharon, Thanks for sharing your experience with us. I'm really sorry to hear about the hiccups you faced during your visit. It's disappointing when our service falls short, especially when it's not busy. We appreciate your patience and understanding when it came to the coffee situation, and I'm glad our manager could make things right for you. However, it's disheartening to hear that you felt overlooked during the payment process. Your feedback is valuable, and we're taking steps to ensure a smoother experience in the future. We'd love another chance to wow you next time you're in the area. Best, Sarah

    Hi there, Apologies to hear that you felt rushed on your visit with us. We allow 1.5 hours for breakfast and lunch, and hence the last booking is at 3:30pm. I hope you will give us another chance in the future. Best, Sarah

    Love this place and have been many times, usually for brunch, the only slight disappointment this time was the coffee. Decaf should be just as strong as ordinary coffee and unfortunately it was weak and not nice, sorry! Everything else was great thank you.

    Eggs royale were overcooked, my avocado side was literally just a half of an avocado cut up on a plate. Given they arrived around 3 min after ordering them, I’m pretty sure they were warmed up in the microwave than cooked fresh. Venue has good ambience and staff is nice but the food is sadly nothing to rave about

    What has happened to the food at the RHC? All fried even the chicken sticks for the salad bowl. Fritters inedible. I was embarrassed as I had taken friends and they left their meals mostly I eaten. We smelt like we had been in a chip shop post meal....what a shame

    Service was poor. Hot drinks took 20 minutes and arrived at the same time as food. Nobody asked if we wanted sauce, checked back or asked how meal was. Empty plates left on the table a long time and we weren't offered more drinks. 13.5% service charge added to a small table is ridiculous given poor service

    The food was average but overpriced. I had the veggie breakfast and it was fine, nothing special. My friend had the full English and despite being the most expensive thing on the menu, it was pretty small and lacking. The veggie breakfast was much bigger actually! The staff were polite but we were reminded on 3 separate occasions a (at the beginning of our booking) that we needed to give the table back at a certain time. We felt rushed before we’d even ordered a drink and it felt quite pushy, and made us feel unwelcome.

    Exceptional food and service. Loved it! Fifth time I’ve been and it’s always as good. Lovely atmosphere and food is sublime. It’s a very relaxed place great lighting and background music. If I have one criticism - would be nice to have a bottle of wine on the menu slightly cheaper. I’d visit more often if that were the case.

    We sent my parents for their 50th Wedding Anniversary while they were celebrating in London for the weekend. They said the food was delicious, the staff were wonderfully friendly and the service was excellent. It was perfect for a casual and fun celebration and everyone went out their way to make my Mum and Dad feel special on their golden anniversary.

    The food didn’t meet the standards. I’d like to highlight the management isn’t very warm or welcoming. She was absolutely rude when we tried to share our review of being served a burnt toast. Regardless, pancakes were decent. But thanks to the service by the manager, wouldn’t like to go again.

    The food is fantastic!!! Mariusz is the best waiter in the restaurant. His attention to detail is spot on! My friends and I felt very welcomed.
